Super Eagles of Nigeria are now 39th in the FIFA Ranking released this Thursday morning. It was a slight improvement on the 4oth position they were in the last ranking done in April.
Their away win over Sierra Leone which also secured a qualification to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations may have been a contributory factor to the slight rise.
The Super eagles are however still out of the top five in the continent as Morocco, Senegal, Tunisia and Algeria- in that order – are unrelenting in their grip of the top position.
Morocco’s Atlas Lions, the only African team to have reached the semi-finals of the World Cup are still number 1 in Africa and 13th globally. They are followed by Senegal who are 18th in the world.
Tunisia are third in Africa and 31st in the world while the number 4 ranked African team, Algeria are 34th in the world.
Globally, Argentina are still number 1.
Nearly three months on from regaining top spot in the FIFA World Ranking, La Albiceleste remain out front thanks to friendly wins over Australia and Indonesia.
The top three is also unchanged, with the reigning world champions staying ahead of France (2nd) and Brazil (3rd).
